Young love is a familiar subject, but BLUE IS the WARMEST COLOR is something rare. It captures the urgency and ease of first love, its romanticism, its physicality, its desperation, its ecstasy, and the way the memory of first love can linger into later life. The most important thing to know is that it’s the most emotionally moving film to come along in years. Make no mistake, the film constitutes a breakthrough, in addition to being the best film of 2013.
Once in a while a movie comes along that doesn’t just affect how you think or feel, it performs its own kind of physical alchemy, burrowing its way into your consciousness so thoroughly that you feel permanently marked and changed. BLUE IS the WARMEST COLOR, a long, sprawling, boldly immersive coming-of-age drama, works just this sort of magic.
From this simple, not especially unique love story, Kechiche has fashioned an intimate epic in every sense of the term.
